The Chicago White Sox are in a bad way. So far this season, they have been one of the most disappointing teams in Major League Baseball. You can even make an argument that they are the number one most disappointing team of the season.
There are a lot of things to blame for this issue. Rick Hahn didn’t give this great core the depth that they need to succeed. The best players on this team have had very up and down seasons so far as well. It is also a team that is both poorly coached and managed in every way.
Unfortunately, the one who deserves the most blame so far is Tony La Russa. He has done a very bad job managing this team. The lineups are bad almost every single night. Each in-game strategy decision seems to be questionable. La Russa is also having a hard time running the bullpen.
We know that La Russa was not Rick Hahn’s choice as the coach. He probably wasn’t even on Hahn’s radar but owner Jerry Reinsdorf wanted to right a wrong from multiple decades ago. It is honestly a shame to see it work out this way.
The White Sox could consider a new manager if Tony La Russa was let go.
It is unlikely that La Russa would ever be fired for obvious reasons but you never know. He could also resign at some point because it is so obviously not working. Anything can happen in this crazy game.
If the unthinkable did happen and they were looking for a new coach, there are a bunch of candidates out there. There are two freshly fired managers for the White Sox to consider as they could really help this team get back on track:
